COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's governor says nearly 2.8 million residents have registered for Ohio’s Vax-a-Million vaccination incentive prize ahead of Wednesday's drawing.

Gov. Mike DeWine says vaccinations have surged across demographic groups since he announced the incentive program.

The lottery provides five $1 million prizes to adults and five full-ride college scholarships to children.

Winners will be announced weekly at the end of the Ohio Lottery’s Cash Explosion TV show.

DeWine announced the incentive program May 12 as a way of building enthusiasm for the slowing COVID-19 vaccination effort.
